I can see the virtue in click-to-focus; some users move their mouse
cursor away from the window they want to use, similar to ratpoison's
"banish". So, if a user is accustomed to "banishing" their cursor out
of sight, they might also prefer to tell the window manager
specifically what window they want to have focus by clicking on it,
regardless of cursor position afterwards.
